What we do and why we do it…
Our Nurture Group, The Orchard, has been running for two years now and we are very proud of this provision at FPA. The Orchard group runs a morning group and two afternoon groups. The Orchard group is supported well by our whole staff and parents. Children are identified by their class teacher initially. It may be felt that a child would benefit from attending a smaller group for part of the day, to enable the child to grow in confidence, receive more adult time or to support their language development. The Orchard group has a very set routine, this helps children know what to expect and ensures the children feel safe and secure within the environment.
Everything we do within the Nurture Group is based around the six principles of Nurture:
- Children’s learning is understood developmentally
- The classroom offers a safe base
- The importance of Nurture for the development of wellbeing
- Language is a vital means of communication
- All behaviour is communication
- The importance of transitions in children’s lives

This half term we have been so busy in the Orchard Room! We have explored lots of different Traditional Tales, we have used special language, such as ‘Fe, Fi, Fo, Fum’, ‘Run, run, as fast as you can’ and ‘Who’s that trip, trapping on my bridge?’
We have created so many different characters from the books we have read. Our group have used a variety of materials, including paper plates, tissue paper, crepe paper, paint, glitter, lollipop sticks and even porridge to make all our props.
All the children have shown how they can turn take, have used their imaginations (we thought we had empty boxes but they were soon turned into a bridge!) and have had lots of fun along the way!
Next half term we will be looking at Nursery Rhymes.
